I have been interested in growing, showing and breeding orchids since 1969 (53 years so far). If you have spent that much time doing anything -- you should be pretty good at it.
I am. Because, I have been growing with Doris Dukes for almost that long, and she has humbled me into being a much more observant grower. I now have 52 National Cultural Awards for Bulbophyllums (highest is 98.2 points) and we have a total of 103 (so far) Cultural awards in 30 genera. There is a yearly award given for the Best Bulbo Exhibited that year named after me, which is quite an honor.
I was the world's leading hybridizer of award-quality Bulbophyllums and all of my plants are now Colchicine treated (see Colchicine page) at great expense and greatly reduced yields, but better plants.
I promise you that you will get nothing but straight answers to any questions, that I stand behind everthing I sell and I will do everything I can to make you happy.
